underscore something i have long believed that constitutions should take precedence over elections. let me explain. look at the difference between egypt and jordan. at the start of the arab spring, it appeared that egypt responded to the will of the people, made a clean break with its past and was ushering in a new birth of freedom. jordan, by contrast, had a number of protests, but king abdullah responded with only a few personnel changes and promised to study the situation and talk of reform. but then egypt started going down the wrong path and jordan made a set of wise choices. put simply, egypt shows democratization. before liberalization. elections became the most important element of the new order. used in legitimizing the new government, electing a president and ratty fiing the constitution. as a result, the best organized force in egypt, the muslim brotherhood swept into power and was able to dominate the drafting of the constitution. the document has many defects. it failed to explicitly protect women's rights. it allowed for media censorship in the name of national security, and

. at the start of that first term, newly elected president obama also wanted to nominate john brennan to be the head of the cia. but he didn't end up putting him forward. john brennan ended up taking his name out of contention for that nomination because of opposition to him being chosen. and the opposition centered on the fact that john brennan had been deputy executive director of the cia during the bush days. during the bad old torturing prisoners days of the george w. bush administration. so you're going to have a brand-new president who bans torture, but then you're going to put a guy who was there for the whole torture regime in charge of the cia? yeah, there was an effort made to make the case that john brennan had been opposed to the torture methods while he had been at the cia, but nothing in his known professional tenure backed that up. at least not enough to save his nomination. and john brennan withdrew his name from consideration that year and he did not run the cia during barack obama's first term. instead, he got the world's greatest consolation prize. he became a very
